Animal Science Labs announced in an organizational release,1 the launch of a new product it helped formulate to relieve cat anxiety using the cat’s owner’s natural scent. The product, Kitty Comfort Spray, will take a cat owner's scent molecules in a highly concentrated formula and mix it with therapeutic grade essential oils. The company is hoping this will be a helpful solution in calming cats’ anxiety.

When Kitty Scent Spray is used, the scent should remind a cat of their owner and bring them comfort, even if the owner is not physical with them. To collect the personalized scent and create their custom spray, the customer first receives a collection kit in the mail that contains everything needed to capture their scent molecules. Once completed,1 the collection kits are mailed back to Animal Science Labs. From there, Animal Science Labs will use so its HME processing method.

The HME will have no noticeable scent to humans, but with cats having up to 80 million scent receptors in their nose, they can sense the smell about 20 times more effectively than humans.1

"Anyone who has experienced their cats suffering from anxiety knows how helpless it feels," Cameron Yellin-Falanga, holistic aromatherapist and co-founder of Animal Science Labs, stated in the release. "Being able to offer a product that helps transform anxiety can be life-changing for the cats and brings great relief to their humans as well."1

Animal Science Labs suggests that Kitty Comfort Spray works best when used before any stressful event, or to help ease cats that suffer from anxiety. Some examples of stressful events could include separation from owner/family, loud/unknown noises, and any other traumatic event.

Researchers from the Human-Animal Interaction Lab at Oregon State University (OSU) have concluded that cats prefer their human's scent to that of food, catnip, and the smell of other cats.1

The researchers from OSU spoke on this research and stated, “Our study indicates that when cats live in a state of dependency with a human, that attachment behavior is flexible and the majority of cats use humans as a source of comfort.”2

Kitty Comfort Spray is all-natural and plant-based. Ingredients (besides the HME) include therapeutic grade essential oils such as lavender, geranium, and roman chamomile.1
